Mercier Kilo TT Build
About 5 years ago someone hit my bike, resulting in a small crack on the downtube. The crack expanded over time and it finally broke about a month ago. Rather then spending the $500 on a new Surly Steamroller frameset, I decided to save some money by buying a Mercier Kilo TT frameset for ~$225, and reusing parts from the steamroller. It took over a month to build, most delays were due to waiting for parts to arrive.

I spent $372.92 to buy the frame plus the parts/tools I didn't already have and in the end, I think I saved about ~190.
